Half time, 0-0
4:07 Lowest attendance in 14 years… only just breaking the 1000 mark.
4:09 First chance of the game falls to Marcus Kelly, whose good shot is saved.
4:14 Nearly 400 minutes without a Rushden goal comes to an end as Daryl Clare puts RDFC in front. Some good Osano attacking created a corner, from which a Hope header was palmed into Clare’s path. The two Radio D commentators, both under the impression that they are the lead anchors, struggle to make themselves heard over the other’s shouting. 1-0.
4:35 Radio D has gone barmy.
